Blocks: Exabis Competencies - Competence grids

Maintained by Picture of andreas riepl andreas riepl
This module can be used to work with competence grids within Moodle spanning over courses. Teachers and students can document their process in working with different competence fields - students self-reflect and build up their competence-profile. Portfolio artefacts can be associated with competences. Also teachers can assign learning paths to students and provide them with different activities and materials. This and other modules belonging to the exabis series was developed together with the Kultusministerium Baden-Württemberg and Landesinstitut für Schulentwicklung, Germany and the Federal Ministry of Education, Austria.

With this module competency based education can be administered within Moodle. The module has been developed since 2014 and is loaded with different features. Also two webapps called eLOVE (electronical lifelong outcomeoriented vocational education) and Dakora (Das Arbeiten mit Kompetenzrastern = working with competence grids) are available in appstores that can be used as a frontend to Moodle working with adaptive learning scenarios and eportfolios.

Competence grids can be created collaboratively at (export of xml-file) but also within Moodle.  Teachers can add their own materials and Moodle activities to competences. Students can self-reflect, contribute by adding individual artefacts to competences and build up their compentence-profile course-independently.

This module focuses more on distributing materials needed for adaptive learning processes then compared to Moodle competences that relate to Moodle activities. It is possible to exchange data from Moodle-generated competences that are associated with Moodle activities and the exabis series.

With the exabis-series consisting of exabis ePortfolio, exabis competencies and exabis student review teachers can work on individualization scenarios. Students can contribute portfolio artefacts, teachers can roll out materials to students selectively and reports can be generated documenting this work.

For a detailed documentation refer to the Teacher's manual.

    We have switched the competence profile to a more detailed concept, you should be able to see a progress bar within competence fields now, regards Andreas

    Hallo Zusammen,
    ich werde weder aus der Anleitung für Admins, als auch aus der für Lehrer nicht schlau mixed
    In der Beschreibung des Plugins steht:
    "Competence grids can be created ... but also within Moodle."
    Wie genau mach ich das in Moodle?
    Als Admin finde ich nur die Seite mit den Einstellungen, als Lehrer steht im Block folgendes:
    "Vorauswahl der Kompetenzen durch den Administrator notwendig"

    Wenn man den Haken bei "Angepasste Bewertung" setzt, sollte nach Anleitung ...

    "Course-specific (adapted) grading
    If a check mark is set here, the grading can be set specifically for every course."

    ..möglich sein. Im Kurs ändert sich überhaupt nichts. Wo sind die Einstellungen für Kurs-spezifische Bewertungen?

    Hallo Steffen, Kompetenzraster können entweder über kollaborativ (moodleunabhängig) erstellt werden (Ausgabe als xml-Datei, die vom admin importiert werden kann) oder direkt in Moodle. In diesem Fall ist es erforderlich, als Trainer im Kurs in den Bearbeitungsmodus einzusteigen und dann über "Kompetenzraster erstellen" einen neuen anlegen. Bezüglich "angepasste Bewertung" überprüfen wir das gleich. lg Andreas

    Hallo Andreas,
    wo genau finde ich den Punkt "Kompetenzraster erstellen"?
    Im Block "Kompetenzraster" steht nur "Vorauswahl der Kompetenzen durch den Administrator notwendig" und als Administrator habe ich nur die Konfigurationsseite für das Plugin (oder habe ich etwas übersehen)?
    Klicke ich auf die Einstellungen des Blocks (Zahnrad) bekomme ich nur Einstellungen, die die Position des Blocks usw. betreffen.

    als admin hast du im block im kurs mehrere optionen (also auch import), um kursspezifische bewertung zu verwenden müssen useprofoundness und additional_grading ausgeschalten sein, dann kann man das bewertungsschema eingeben. lg Andreas

    Hallo Andreas,
    auch als Admin sehe ich im Kurs im Block "Kompetenzraster" nur die Möglichkeit "Import/Export", aber ich finde nirgends die Möglichkeit ein Kompetenzraster einzugeben (also keine Datei hochzuladen, sondern das Kompetenzraster direkt in Moodle zu erstellen).

    Hallo Steffen, du hast recht, wir werden das in der nächsten Version korrigieren. Der Workaround ist jetzt, dass du eine xml-Datei aus importierst (vielleicht auch nur mit einem eigenen Kompetenzraster. Ab dann kannst du auch eigene Kompetenzraster anlegen, wir korrigieren den Bug, lg Andreas

    Hi Andreas!

    Firstly, thanks for your awesome hard work on all of your modules - it's very much appreciated! I'm currently having an issue with the Competence Grid. I'm going through the configuration setup as an admin, and I've completed the 'Configuration' and 'Subject selection' tabs, but when I get to the 'Assign Moodle activities' tab it's blank and there's nothing under the tab so configuration can't be completed. As a result, when I go to (for example) 'https://mymoodle/blocks/exacomp/assign_competencies.php?courseid=4' the page is completely blank. I've tried to look in the logs in on the server and in the database but I can't seem to find anything that's helpful. I'm on Moodle 3.2+ and I've created a new outcomes/standards XML file at which I'm using so I suspect that's not the problem. Any help at all in figuring out what the issue could be here would be appreciated!

    Kind regards,

    Hello Liam. The tab assign moodle activities only works if you already have activities in the course. otherwise just untick "I work with moodle activities" - then the competence grid should be shown. Also please make sure that you use the option nextgen for export with edustandards. otherwise please send me the xml-file - I will take a look at it. Andreas
